  1. That definitely was a heartfelt New Year wish. And yes, the ‘No Children’ places are no longer exciting to us parents. Feeling blessed to have spent another beautiful year in company of my man and my girls. Even more happier to have woken up to a New Year with the first sight of them too. A Very Happy New Year ti you and your loved ones too, Sakshi! 🙂
